Top Emailing Tools For Reaching Your Audience
One of the essential truths about online business of any kind is that you need an effective way to communicate with your customers. Among millions of other web pages, including thousands of competitors, it’s not as easy for them to come to you naturally. Since the invention of the internet, numerous strategies have been developed and tried. New technologies and platforms have risen and fallen. One of them has been constant, though, almost since the dawn of the Information Age itself: email. You could even go so far as to call email marketing the backbone of the internet economy.
Email Marketing is Essential
It could be easy to ignore email. Nobody likes all the spam in their inboxes, and social media is so much sexier. There’s a reason email has such staying power, though. Everything else online has ended up requiring an email account in order to function. There are a few exceptions, like WhatsApp, based on an even older technology: the phone number.
The fact is that email is simple, and already universal. If you want a guaranteed way of getting your message in front of someone, sending them an email is the closest thing that exists. Other platforms come and go, so any efforts spent building up your presence there are riskier. Remember MySpace?
Building an email marketing list, though, is not only simple, but greatly rewarding. The hard part is generating the content that goes into them, but that’s nothing a marketing and sales team can’t handle.
There are a number of powerful software tools out there that make it easy to manage your email campaigns. Here’s a look at three of the best:
Mailchimp is a basic product, but that doesn’t mean it’s not useful. On the contrary, it’s a powerful system that integrates with a variety of publishing and selling platforms. It’s also free to use for your first 12,000 emails sent to under 2,000 subscribers. When you’re just starting out, it’s a no-brainer.
Salesloft features a bit more automation. One of its most powerful features is that it seamlessly integrates with SalesForce CRM, and also with Gmail and Outlook. With that integration, it helps you design smart templates that still allow for incredibly personal touches.
Outreach is itself part of a wider suite of sales engagement software that gives your sales reps access to top-of-the-line automation and integration. It’s like the rolls Royce of emailing platforms, among its other features. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more effective way to streamline your sales process.
